The proposed project supports the development of a strategy and a national action plan for decent youth employment in the agricultural and agri-food sectors in Niger (PAJEJ2A). The project aims to promote job creation in the agricultural and agri-food sectors in the country. The Bank will support the Government of Niger in its efforts to boost youth employment in the agricultural and agri-food sector and play a strategic role in national consultations on this issue in Niger. The project has 4 components: (i) Elaboration and popularisation of a strategy and a national action plan for youth employment in the agricultural and agri-food sector in Niger; (ii) Capacity building of actors and structures involved in the implementation of the strategy; (iii) Mobilisation of resources necessary for the implementation of the NAP and the scaling up of the COE; (iv) Operation of the Project Management Unit.
